Reality


It sounds good when I pronounce that I am sleeping in...

But really, no one can leave me alone. At least much past 9:00am.

The good news is that the holiday was joyeuse and a good time was had by all...

Fun Daddy, extended my membership with Rosetta Stone, so I guess I have to figure out how to get to Greece this year....

I got Fun Daddy the book that the TV series Dexter was based on... it will take him about a year to read it.

The girls got their ugly UGGs and there was much rejoicing. Apparently, for once in my miserable life, I managed to get both sizes and colors correct. Yeah me!

They also got laminated maps of the city with CTA train routes... Hopefully they can find their way around without me needing to consider I am experiencing an aneurysm.

We ate Turducken which everyone enjoyed but I found anti-climactic as I it was sooo much freaking work deboning all of the damn birds. still it was pretty and tasty too.

Parents, children and grandparents all got along during the day. Cinnamon kept her begging to a bare minimum... and all was right with the world.

Sook-say!

Blinky got Uggs when her Dell didn't arrive in time. They looked cute on her, though. (I normally don't think that about those boots.)

I don't either... but the girlies are really happy and apparently any dark color would have been good for Lillith and she got black... and ANY color would have made Imelda happy and she got chocolate, espresso.. I don't know... dark brown.

Great pics with the grand-dads.

And is that face Lillith is making over the Coach bag a face of happiness or disgust? it's hard to tell...

Congrats on the Uggs. Someday they will look back on those they way I look back on the platform shoes and big collars in the late 70s and think "holy hell, why was I allowed out of the house looking like that..."

Oh it is a look of disgust... but with me. She hates me taking her picture. Apparently she doesn't not appear beautiful enough.. which is, of course, ridiculous... But that is Lillith for you.
